I'm a Lecturer in Computer Science (Education and Scholarship) in the department of Computer Science. I teach programming and group software engineering and am the programme director for undergraduate Computer Science degrees.

My academic interests are primarily in Computer Science Education and Data Systems. I am the department lead for Project Enhance, chair of the Industry Advisory Board for the department, fellow of the Education Incubator, End Point Assessor for the Digital and Technology Solutions degree apprenticeship, Postgraduate Teaching Assistant Coordinator and champion for students on the Autism spectrum.

Before joining the University of Exeter I was a teaching fellow at Newcastle University where I taught Information Systems, Server-Side Web Development and coordinated the Dissertation Project module. I was the School of Computer Science academic lead for enterprise and employability, Placements Coodinator and was the postgraduate demonstrator coordinator. I progressed from a Teaching Assistant role where I supported practical teaching across 210 credits of stage 3 Computer Science and I received my EngD from Newcastle University focussing on data integration for microbiome research.
